Operation “Fast and Furious” Falls Flat

Outrage on both sides of the fence has been expressed over the Phoenix-based Operation Fast and Furious—which purportedly allowed elements of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to be instrumental in the introduction of 1,765 guns into Mexico over a period of 15 months in an effort to track their use, and ended up arming deadly drug cartels instead.

Two of those weapons were found at the scene of the shootout that killed Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

The full grasp of the #winning operation might never be known, as according to the Center for Public Integrity, only 10% of F&F’s  arms were recovered in Mexico and 30% in the United States; leaving 1,200 guns still on the streets and potentially in the hands of criminal drug lords.  

We here at El Zonkey Show like to see the gold-plated AK as half-full and would at least like to thank the Bureau for the bitchin’ name.

They could have really gone out there but instead they kept it krunk, as the moniker comes with its own theme song courtesy of Ludacris’ Act a Fool (2 Fast 2 Furious), from the 2003 eponymous film.

So don your favorite embroidered Polo shirt and rock out with your body-dissolving-tubs-of-acid out and enjoy the gangsta jam here.
